The USS Venture (NCC-71854), one of Starfleet's finest vessels, is also one of its most famous. Having served with great distinction during the Dominion War under the command of Admiral Hastur, the Venture has become a familiar face around the core worlds of the Federation, keeping the peace and serving as a guiding light for the Federation's diplomatic corps. In recent years, her legend has continued to grow, her reputation following her on her voyage through the dangerous, unchartered Gavarian Corridor.

A symbol of strength and longevity, of power and status, the USS Venture serves in Bravo Fleet's Task Force 93. Under the command of a eclectic band of explorers, Venture will patrol the volatile area of space along the border of two great empires, foster peace in the region and forge her way forward, into the 'Undiscovered Country'.

The USS Venture is a Play by Nova simm set in the year 2388. Events taking place follow Star Trek, Bravo Fleet and Task Force canon and should be treated accordingly. Anyone wishing to join, should visit the LCARS Database and its Official Protocol section first.

» Venture's new direction

Posted on Tue Feb 26th, 2019 @ 2:18am by Captain Makayla Perin-Zyl in Announcement

Hello everyone,

This is a bittersweat announcement for me to make so bear with me here. As you all know I've been running Venture for many years, I originally joined the sim back in 2013 and took charge not long after that. Venture is my first sim command and has been a huge part of my life. I couldn't be more thankful for the time I've spend here and for all the people who've joined me along the way.

Of course in the last year or so we've hit several bumps along the road, activity wise and smaller player base, and I feel it is time to revamp our sim. To that end I've been working with Kos and Sin on combining out sim with that of the Southern Cross. Venture will continue as the garrison vessel for our new home, Starbase Kusawake, a Stardock class station in orbit of the planet Ashland.

The Cross will operate in the same theater but not always directly share missions with us. Everyone will be allowed to PC characters, one for the base and one for the Cross should you desire. IC wise Venture crew will transfer over to the base and operate in their respective positions there.

I hope you all will make the journey with us, it's strange to not 'officially' still have the Venture under my wing, I honestly thought I'd be running the sim until I completely stopped writing. But this is an exciting next step and will keep her legacy a part of our writing even as we continue onto the next chapter for the sim.

If anyone has any questions about the whole thing please reach out to the team and we'll do our best to answer. We'll also have official dates for things moving over and starting soon.

Thank you all for being a part of this adventure with me, it's been amazing and the best of my life.

Good news everyone!

In this day and age health care is a real concern. With premiums from Ferengi insurers at an all time high and all the best Vulcan Doctors not accepting new patients it's hard to keep yourself in tip top condition. Thankfully for those of us aboard Venture we no longer have to worry. I'd like you all to join me in welcoming Alex playing Lieutenant Fyvel Kenohya and James playing Lieutenant Gregory Helms our new CMO and ACMO respectively. They'll be taking care of our crew's well being and possibly shaking things up along the way. Both are veteran writers and come to us with a lot of experience and creativity so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

We'll be getting them both officially aboard soon but in the mean time feel free to get started on those medical check ins! We're all a bit behind on our annual physicals. ;)
